John timberland 45 watt landscape transformer with photocell

The John timberland 45 watt landscape transformer with photocell I have is a 45 watt power supply made by the company "John timberland" in Australia. The transformer is a 5 volt transformer but there is a "photocell" built in to the transformer which uses a photo transistor to light up an indicator light when it has enough electricity to be able to deliver an electric shock. If the transformer is used on dry surfaces then the photocell would light up before the transformer had enough electricity to supply a shock to anyone and prevent an accident. This transformer has a green colour plastic case and 2 buttons which are used to change the battery voltage and control the output.

When not in use this transformer should be kept in a dry and dust free area. This transformer should be used on wooden and tiled surfaces and other surfaces that could get wet. The photocell inside the transformer should be kept dry or may experience problems. If the photocell gets wet then the colour may change and the indicator light may not work correctly.

This transformer is made by an Australian company and may also be used as an audio transformer. The audio use is not mentioned in the technical specifications but the transformer will work for this application. This transformer has 4 pins to connect the transformer to an amp and speaker and the transformer has 2 outputs.

My Opinion About this product is I find this a useful and cheap transformer.

The John timberland 45 watt landscape transformer with photocell I have is a 45 watt power supply made by the company "John timberland" in Australia. The transformer is a 5 volt transformer but there is a "photocell" built in to the transformer to enable you to use it in both a 5 volt and 12 volt system. The photocell will light up when there is a voltage on the power line. The transformer has a "lazy-S" shape that it is easy to fit into my shed. It is only made for use with a 12 volt system, so if you are planning on using this in a 5 volt system you need a separate converter to fit between the transformer and the power supply.

I have used this transformer for years on a 5 volt system in my garden, and when the power supply in my garden ran out of power, my wife connected it to the 5 volt power supply in my shed. The photocell in the transformer worked perfectly and was able to supply power to my 5 volt light bulb, and my 12 volt lamp and other electronics. I have been very happy with the quality of the photocell and have never had to change it since I purchased this unit years ago.

Pros:

-The photocell is easy to set up and use, and does not require any electricity to make it work.

-You can make this a portable power supply for use in your garden by connecting it to a 12 volt power supply.

-The transformer is made of a very strong stainless steel and a thick black plastic to protect it from dirt and water.

Cons:

-You need to have a separate power supply to convert the power into a 5 volt system.

-Although the photocell is easy to use and setup, there are no markings on the photocell to tell you how much power it will supply.

-Although there is no marking on the photocell to let you know how much power it supplies, when you use this in your garden it will only provide enough power for a 5 volt system.

You can make this portable and use it in your garden by connecting it to a 12 volt power supply.

All in all I have been very happy with the quality of this product and the ease of setup. I would highly recommend this product.

Very simple set up, no issues!...This unit is not intended to power any of your garden lighting but it does the job for an inexpensive portable power supply for an 8 volt system.

If you are just adding a single lamp this is the unit to buy. This is not for powering any multi-lights that require 120 volts or more.

As you can see I am using the unit to provide power for the light above my driveway gate. It fits neatly on the light pole and the unit's own switch controls power to the light above the gate.

The unit was easy to set up and had no problems starting the circuit in my neighborhood.

The only issue that I had was the switch does not work after it has been in the sun for a while. I had to keep an eye on it.

This is a simple and effective way to power a small lamp or lights that are not connected to your home power.

Product was delivered with no instructions...The instructions came in the second box that was mailed to me, i would expect better service. The box is labeled "product description" in the front..no information on power connections, how to setup to your pole, or other important information..

This one has everything you need and no fancy stuff, you will probably still find yourself needing more than it provides so you could buy a battery and connect it up to your house instead of using the "solar power"
